I turned 30 on June 26th. I got the idea for this blog after reading the article “Bucket List: 30 Things To Do Before You Turn 30” by Nicole Booz. Well… that ship has already sailed. Surprisingly, there was little to read regarding the 30 things you should do while you’re 30. Thus my idea was born.
I decided to ask 30 friends, family, co-workers and even complete strangers who are all 30+ to contribute. I asked them to think of something that I should do, accomplish, learn, try, etc. while I am 30. These ideas could come from what they learned while they were 30, what they wish they had learned/done when they were 30 or what they wish for me while I’m 30. No idea is too abstract, no task too difficult. I am here to learn, to grow, to change. I am here to jump in while I have the time and the time in now. Geronimo!
Each week I am going to take one lesson, piece of advice or task that has been given to me and share it with you. Some of these may be ongoing and some I may be able to accomplish in a day. Either way, I am going to write about my experiences and the journey I am taking. I hope that I get to try new things. I hope that I get to learn about myself . I hope that I can become closer to and get to better know those that have graciously agreed to be part of this experience. You are all so much a part of me and with this idea, I honor you and your struggles and triumphs. I will write my own story with your guidance and support.
This is thirty.
